Art You Can't Missat San Francisco International Airport
Next time you’re at SFO, plan a little extra time to relax and enjoy the world-class art exhibits.
Did you know San Francisco International Airport is the country's only airport with a museum program accredited by the American Association of Museums?
Next time you’re at SFO, plan a little extra time to relax and enjoy the world-class art exhibits; let your imagination take flight. You don’t have to be traveling to enjoy the art. There are plenty of exhibits pre-security to enjoy, making SFO a great rainy-day outing. Although it’s fun to take the free AirTrain from terminal to terminal, you'll see the most if you just stroll.
SFO Artwork is Open to the Public and Free of Charge
Although not a museum in the traditional sense, SFO’s permanent Public Art Collection includes more than 100 paintings, sculptures, mosaics and site-specific works in a diversity of styles and media by artists of local, national and international acclaim. In addition to six light artworks featured in Illuminate SF by artists Ned Kahn, Eric Staller, Vito Acconci, James Carpenter, Keith Sonnier, and Merge Conceptual Design, SFO exhibits works by top Bay Area artistic talents like Wayne Thiebaud, James Torlakson, Roy De Forest, Hassel Smith and Lee Mullican. All of them can be found in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, as well as works by international art stars like Arnaldo Pomodoro and Seiji Kunishima. All works in the Civic Art Collection cited at SFO are provided by the San Francisco Arts Commission, through the City’s percent-for-art program.
